    Great muffins. I did some modifications. I replaced the oil with applesauce and cut the sugar in half. Also used chopped ham on hand instead of bacon. Delcious savory muffins. A definite keeper.  -  30 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These are excellent!!! Mine turned out great--not too dry at all. The only deviation from the original recipe was that I didn't have any wheat germ to add. I just substituted extra flour for it. I also added a handful of shredded Italian blend cheese (though I don't think this would effect the moistness any). I baked mine in a mini-muffin pan (for the same amount of time) for our church's after-service Easter Brunch--I can't wait to share them!!! (of course, I had to test 1 or 2--OK, maybe 3, first!)  -  26 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My fiance' and I loved this! I substituted turkey bacon, and added some cheddar cheese....yummy! I didn't have any wheat germ on hand, I am wondering how that effects the recipe? Anyone?  -  13 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
